Weaving modern cloth with Victorian looms

14 February 2014 Last updated at 00:22 GMT

When Daniel Harris rescued a rusting loom from an old barn in rural Wales, it led to the creation of London's first micro-mill.

Established in 2011, the London Cloth Company uses traditional weaving techniques and a range of equipment dating all the way back to the 1870s.

Three years on, the company supplies woven cloth to a growing number of designers, companies and individuals.

BBC News went to see Daniel Harris at work and hear more about why he looked back to the 19th century for inspiration.
